Energy World May 2019

We return to the subject of nuclear power in this issue, with a focus on new approaches to decommissioning and the development of waste disposal methods that will stand the test of time. We also include articles on how post-Fukushima Japan is facing up to its energy future and the considerable impact that building Hinkley Point C is having in Somerset.

Our second theme is the interplay between renewable electricity generation and battery energy storage, illustrated by some interesting projects in Australia and the US. There is also an article on rocks – or rather, how UK geologists propose to learn more about the likely effects of geothermal energy and carbon dioxide storage on the ground beneath our feet.

Meanwhile, this month’s viewpoint article, and the last in the magazine on page 34, both suggest a growing role for hydrogen in heating, industry and power generation. Two more articles from the EI – one from the one of the Young Professionals Networks; the other from the Asia-Pacific branch, complete the issue.
